@Pete Quinn@twitter Am I wrong to assume, by the way, that the author probably shares my opinion?
For education job fairs in my area, I could make my own, slightly truncated list: 1. Don't go. I've never been to a legitimate corporate job fair, so I can't say this assessment extends to the exact subject of the article. But in my field and in my experience, it's a demoralizing cattle call.
@Ben E. Fitz You're a mensch. I feel much more equipped to live as a grown-ass person now. Thank you so much.
This is like, super embarrassing, but I figure this is a safe space. I've been on my parent's health insurance all my life (they are both teachers), and this year I will most likely get my own teaching job and therefore my own insurance. However, I know absolutely nothing about insurance. I know the co-pay is what I pay for a doctor's visit. But what is a deductible, exactly? And this "Out of Pocket Limit"? I've had sooo many conversations with friends and family members about doctors visits and insurance lately (minor health scare, everything's cool) without knowing what the hell I'm talking about. I've gotten this far because I, thank goodness, have generally excellent health. Any kind souls out there want to knock some sense into me?
I also heard on a Canadian podcast this week that there are new Canadian $100 bills that SMELL LIKE MAPLE SYRUP. It's true!
